Ann Cunniff

Chief Creative Officer | Chief Client Officer

Equal parts creative director, writer and strategic thinker, for more than two decades Ann Cunniff has built a reputation as one of Chicago’s top branding, marketing and communications strategists.

In 2016, Ann merged her award-winning firm Chicago Creative Works into Resolute, strengthening our in-house creative services. In her new role, she will continue to build our creative team, paying careful attention to our creative integrity and elevate our client work. Ann will work with Resolute’s clients to help them define their brand, shape issues through the power of creativity and transform their organization.

A creative and strategic force, Ann specializes in communication based on ideas. Ideas that move people to action. Throughout her process, she challenges conventional wisdom, pushes the envelope and helps clients reimagine themselves. She is known for creating campaigns and communications that are fresh, exciting, and a little unexpected – establishing a deep emotional connection between the client and its audience.

She has worked with and developed signature communications and branding campaigns for some of the most well-known, not-for-profit and corporate organizations, including Chicago Shakespeare Theater, Chicago Botanic Garden, Art Institute of Chicago, Grant Park Music Festival, Metropolitan Family Services, Chicago Architecture Foundation, Chicago Public Library Foundation, USG, and Nuveen.
